I have a few comments / questions about this:
1) People are already confused about how to handle the recently-added commit-queue flag.  Adding an extra flag is going to increase the confusion.
2) What machines are going to be doing these tests, and on which platforms?
3) Which patches would this test?  Running tests on an arbitrary patch uploaded in Bugzilla opens up the testing machine to executing arbitrary code unless there are limitations in place.
